I never mentioned Sony when writing about my favorite digital compact cameras. Just now they released a great little camera, the DSC-HX9V. If you're into video too it's quite impressive! It can shoot 1080p at 60p and 24Mbit with a 24-380mm lens for $350! Not bad at all! Though it's not as fast as its competitors (Canon s95, Olympus XZ-1,...) it has a nice Exmor R™ CMOS sensor for low light shooting.
